Track Name: Anchor & Fury
THIS IS MY ANCHOR!
THIS IS MY FURY!

This is my anchor
my solid ground
the calm in the storm
when darkness surrounds
a place I control
to set my mind free
absent of turbulence
true serenity

THIS IS MY ANCHOR!
THIS IS MY FURY!

This is my fury
my full on assault
on what I find at fault
shattering everything
that stands in my path
against this force
nothing can last

THIS IS MY ANCHOR!
THIS IS MY FURY!
Track Name: Culture
Disgusted by what I see
Going on around me
They get what they need
Regardless of the evil they feed
Contributing to a cycle
That affects all of us
Our families Our Cities
Our neighboring countries

NOT A PART OF YOUR CULTURE!

I keep my mind free and clear
You can’t go one day without an escape
Living in a clouded reality
What kind of life is that

You fund violence
You fund crime
You fund suffering
You fund death

You are part of the problem
It only exists with demand
Pharmaceutical company’s greed
Drug cartels killing sprees
Every dollar that you spend
Is now soaked in blood
While subsidizing the rich
That destroy lives

NOT A PART OF YOUR CULTURE!

I keep my mind free and clear
You can’t go one day without escape
Living in a clouded reality
What kind of life is that

NOT A PART OF YOUR CULTURE!
Track Name: Destroy Racism
Intelligence is what you lack
Pathetic reasons to attack
Get off the fence or watch your back
No sympathy!
Your reasoning behind it all
Is ignorant you shall fall

The hate has to end!
DESTROY RACISM!
Get it your thick head!
DESTROY RACISM!

There is no logic for this to exist
Smash it with our fists
Stomp it into the ground
No sympathy!
Never allow its rebirth
Eradicate it from this earth

The hate has to end!
DESTROY RACISM!
Get it your thick head!
DESTROY RACISM!
Track Name: Emerald City
Oi! Oi! Oi!

Let’s GO!

Emerald City born and raised
Spent most of my youth with my posse on Broadway
Punx and Skins The Straight Edge
Met at the arcade across the street from Dicks

We stand side by side
No one is looking for a fight
Straight Edge heads keep it in line
No worries only good times

EMERALD CITY!
Seattle’s our home
EMERALD CITY!
We defend our own
EMERALD CITY!
Don’t care who you are
EMERALD CITY!
Better leave us alone

Oi! Oi! Oi!

This city has changed for better or worse
We still got hardcore our true love first
A place where we all belong
Take pride in what we’ve built keep it going strong

We stand side by side
No one is looking for a fight
Straight Edge heads keep it in line
No worries only good times

EMERALD CITY!
Seattle’s our home
EMERALD CITY!
We defend our own
EMERALD CITY!
Don’t care who you are
EMERALD CITY!
Better leave us alone

EMERALD CITY!
ECHC!
Track Name: Overcome
Don’t let life get you down
Even when all seems lost
Never give up hope
Take control look beyond

THE STRENGTH IS INSIDE US ALL!
WE SHALL OVERCOME!

Focus forward facing my fears
My mind is a weapon I will fight
Never letting my goals lose sight
Clarity is within my grasp

THE STRENGTH IS INSIDE US ALL!
WE SHALL OVERCOME!

With my feet firm on the ground
Confronting realism
I will overcome
Track Name: The Torch
Respect to those who came before
paved the way passed down the torch
seeing them ignited something inside of me
a group of outcasts filled with pride others couldn't see
showed me what it was like to be a part of something real
a way to express how I feel

The honor is now ours!
CARRY THE TOURCH!
We will keep this flame alive!

To focus on the future while we're looking at the past with the mindset that there's no guarantee that this will ever last sharpens clarity and values and strengthen the ties that bind us to those who's broken hearts and minds will hope that this is here for them to find

The honor is now ours!
CARRY THE TOURCH!
We will keep this flame alive!

The brotherhood the sisterhood hardcore family thick as blood carry on the torch to the ones that showed sincerity know how much it's meant to me carry on the torch through the sweat and the tears over the years we've built our bond carry on the torch the fire still burns inside young until we die carry on the torch
Track Name: True To Myself
I was never part of the sheep
Strengths come from my beliefs
I live my life the best that I can
I don’t care if you understand
Through it all I found myself
Never questioned how I felt
No one can ever take away my pride
I know exactly who I am inside

TRUE TO MYSELF!

TRUE!

I held true to my convictions while others fell off
You’ll never see me conform or grow soft
For me my path was always clear
To the edge I shall always adhere
Discipline In all aspects of my life
I know only the strong will survive
Looking straight ahead still proud to claim
X X X till my dying day

TRUE TO MYSELF!

Stay true to yourself

TRUE TO MYSELF!
Track Name: Unity
I STILL BELIEVE IN UNITY!

Look at how far we have come
There is still a lot to learn
Open our minds and break free
It starts with you and me
This division has to end
Come together as one
We will stand united
Until that day arrives

I STILL BELIEVE IN UNITY!
Track Name: Never
GIVING UP WAS NEVER AN OPTION!
If you think I'm ready to quit
You've got another thing coming
Track Name: Seattle is Burning
Ichi ni san shi go

Daikaiju attack
Aliens invade
We're being
Over run by the
Walking dead

Seattle is burning
Tokyo's being stomped
Seattle is burning
Tokyo's being stomped

Samurai school girls
Cutting of heads
Tonight the streets
Will run red

Seattle is burning
Tokyo's being stomped
Seattle is burning
Tokyo's being stomped

WHO WILL SAVE US!
Track Name: Nothing Better
You were worth loosing it all
How it started was wrong

NOTHING BETTER!

The pain held us back built up walls
Never allowed us to move on

NOTHING BETTER!
Nothing at all

Blind to what was in front of me
Never again
You are to important
To just let it end
I gave up so much
Fought so hard
Now I'm living with these scars

I know things were never perfect
At least we tried
Saranghae until I die
I took so much for granted
You still stuck by my side
How I feel about you
Was never a lie
Track Name: Die Hard
Do you still feel it
Like when we were young
Rekindle that spirit
Never let it be undone

I want it back
Those times we shared
So full of pride
With out a care
Where did it go
It slipped away
Not for me
Never let it fade

Do you still feel it
I DO!
I still feel it
DIE HARD!

Do you still feel it
I do
I still feel it
Die hard
Track Name: Ikari
Everyone stay clear off me
IKARI!
Can't keep my sanity
IKARI!
So close to loosing it all
IKARI!
I need to find a way to cope
IKARI!

Sometimes my anger gets the best of me
Oi! Oi! Oi!
I loose all rationality
Oi! Oi! Oi!
There is no getting through to me
Oi! Oi! Oi!
You might as well give it up
